Viaa Christian University of Applied Sciences

Viaa is a small Christian university in a city with a rich history: Zwolle. Unique in Europe, the university is specialized in social domains and has a Christian identity and distinctive character. We believe that Jesus' love for us and the world sets an example for us in our contact with others.

Viaa offers four bachelor-level programmes in the fields of Education, Nursing, Social Work and Theology. For incoming international students, we offer 5 English-taught semesters, all of which contain 30 ECTS. We attach great value to qualitatively good education, advice, and research. Accredited by the government, the programmes are all top-rated in several Dutch rankings and the university has a high student satisfaction. This is particularly because of the individual approach, small learning groups and the quality of the programmes. Practical cases of the future field of work are the starting point of teaching and theory is always related to practice.

Zwolle is a typical Dutch city with animated student life; the city houses about 20.000 students. The city has a beautiful historic city centre, as well as a lot of parks. It's also a safe city and if you learn how to ride a bike, it's easy to get around. Student life in Zwolle is focused around the city centre, which is packed with attractive cafés and restaurants. The city is located within 2 hours travel distance of major Dutch cities in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany.
